"A Little Brother Follows Me"

A careful boy I want to be;
A little brother follows me.
I do not dare go astray
For fear he’ll go the selfsame way.

I cannot once escape his eyes;
Whate’er he sees me do, he tries.
Like me he says he’s going to be-
That little brother following me.

He thinks that I am good and fine;
Believes in every word of mine.
The bad in me he must not see-
That little brother following me.

I must remember as I go
Through summer’s sun and winter’s snow,
I’m building for the years to be
That little brother following me

Update:I am so sorry. "bother" was in a spot in this where "brother" should be. That is not what I meant at all. :-( It has now been corrected.

If when you get a little older, there's a guy following closely behind you, you probably underpaid your taxes. He's a fed.
